Mike Tyson Was Confronted By Police At Gym

The legendary pro boxer Mike Tyson has been part of several controversies in his illustrious career. It has been noted that Tyson, who was unaware, had met up with serial killer Dale Hausner. Hausner and his criminal partner Samuel Dieteman committed several murders in Phoenix, Arizona. The serial killer once appeared at the former heavyweight champion’s gym as a sports writer to interview him.



Mike Tyson opens up on the incident

A couple of days after Mike Tyson met up with Dale Hausner, who pretended to be a sports writer, police showed up at the gym and informed ‘Iron Mike’ about Hausner’s heinous crimes. Speaking about the same during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Tyson recalled the incident and said:

“So, I came outside, and I was talking to the guy, and he showed me the picture of me and the guy because it was on his website. And he said, ‘Do you know this gentleman?’ And I said, ‘Well sir, I don’t know, I was promoting a fight, if I must have said something to him, if I offended him, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to do that’. And he said, ‘No, he liked you, Mr. Tyson. He didn’t like the 28 people that he shot and the 8 that he killed’.”

Tyson has been part of several controversial events. The legendary pro boxer Mike Tyson got involved in a controversial incident during his infamous fight with Evander Holyfield. That contest had ended after ‘Iron’ Mike took a bite out of his opponent’s ear. ‘The Real Deal’ recently admitted that he was considering biting his rival in the face. It is one of the most horrific actions in boxing history. The matter is still talked about to this day.

Tyson was disqualified from the match and after the fight. Before the disqualification, Tyson was complaining about illegal headbutts from Holyfield that opened up a cut above his eye. He came out of his corner without his mouthpiece in the third round, before being forced to put it back in. The bite took an inch of cartilage off of Holyfield’s ear as he shrieked in pain in the middle of the ring. The gloves that Evander Holyfield wore in the infamous match against Mike Tyson recently went under the hammer.
